Storyline

A Russian version of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel. Edmond Dantes is falsely accused by those jealous of his good fortune, and is sentenced to spend the rest of his life in the notorious island prison, Chateau d'If. While imprisoned, he meets the Abbe Faria, a fellow prisoner whom everyone believes to be mad. The Abbe tells Edmond of a fantastic treasure hidden away on a tiny island, that only he knows the location of. After many years in prison, the old Abbe dies, and Edmond escapes disguised as the dead body. Now free, Edmond must find the treasure the Abbe told him of, so he can use the new-found wealth to exact revenge on those who have wronged him. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Best of the books made in great movie
5 March 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

*update* I originally wrote the review in 2002, but I have had a chance to watch it again. Mostly the movie was faith to the book, but I think there are still some elements that weren't done well.

1. The prison scenes, I think the flashback was done exactly how it should but the rest wasn't. For example: In several years that they spend together, we should have had a clearer idea of how the abbot was teaching Edmond to be and behave like Count. 2. The part where he was rescued by the captain after escaping and until the scenes of 10 years later, the missing parts were important. For one, the book describes how they had a falling out and in a knife duel he spares his life, thus gaining a loyal friend for life. 3. The ending was not too clear as some parts were a bit confusing.

Anyway, I think it's about 7/10 out and with few chances/additions, it could be 9/10. I just don't think anyone can make a 10/10 movie, that's as good as the book.

*update* Since this movie was done in Russian not many people who aren't native to Russia have seen it

I seen most euro/USA remakes of this wonderful book, however none of them even come close to the excellence of this

While its a big long(almost 4 hrs) i think its fair length , compare book is about 1600 pages

the 4 hrs you spend watching the movie are 4 hrs that you are unable to move from your seat until the movie has ended

it relays the intrigue of the book almost as well as the book itself

i have to applause ussr filmaking of the past time for not caring for size but caring about the quality
